Seocheon Jeosan Pareup Gilssam Nori (Kor. 서천저산팔읍길쌈놀이, Chin. 舒川苧山八邑-, lit. weaving game of eight townships in Jeosan, Seocheon) is a tradition of holding competitive weaving games in some areas of Hansan-myeon, Seocheon-gun, South Chungcheong Province. It is related to the tradition of Hansan ramie weaving, and has been reconstructed as a performance that was based on the way the competition was performed in eight communities known as Jeosan pareup (Kor. 저산팔읍, Chin. 苧山八邑, eight townships of Jeosan). The reconstructed version consists of six madang (Kor. 마당, acts) and was designated as Intangible Cultural Property of South Chungcheong Province, No. 13 in July 1991. Although the custom originally was a weaving game played by women during the period between the lunar July and the mid-lunar August, it is currently a weaving competition is held as one of the events of the Hansan Ramie Culture Festival in early May.

Hansan Gilssam Nori (Kor. 한산길쌈놀이, lit. Hansan weaving game) is a generic name for ramie weaving competitions held by residents of the eight townships of Jeosan. The team that weaves the finest ramie fabric wins the contest. The tradition was showcased in 1982 during a national folk art competition in a version comprising six segments. The contest has a total of 85 participants (13 men and 72 women) and each team is provided with a certain number of necessary tools. Although this contest includes the weavers from eight Jeosan townships, the winner always is the Hansan team, which reinforces the prestige of this town renowned for its ramie production.
